VI Tree in Vancouver

We are excited to provide our services throughout Vancouver Island, the Lower Mainland, the Okanagan, BC’s Central and Northern Interior, Alberta and even the Yukon. We area a small, growing company with a huge heart. Our mission is to provide excellent arborist services using environmentally friendly methods to all of our customers. Our aim is to have happy customers who share their experience with others. Lastly, our vision is be a leader in providing solutions to both the consumer and business sectors in balance with the environment and technical progress.

What separates VI Tree from the competition is our years of cumulative experience within the industry including all the ticket certifications necessary to perform the required tasks. Our 70 ft scissor lift bucket trucks vs. the standard 55 ft ones, provide more reach, functionality and accessibility. Our progressive environmentally responsible steps include utilizing biodiesel and on all diesel vehicles and equipment, as well as using BioPlus, vegetable base oil for our equipment lubrication needs. Moving further in this direction, we have started utilizing battery operated chainsaws.

We are proud of our team, their work and their accomplishments. Among his numerous credentials, Peter Brinson, our Safety Officer, is one of the few ISA Board Certified Master Arborists in the province. Our owner, Troy Soderstrom, is born and raised here in the City of Nanaimo and has been in the arborist industry most of his life.

Our crews, of over 80 staff, are readily available and are happy to be of service to our home, the Island and as we continue to grow, Western Canada.

Our Philosophy

Vancouver Island Tree Services Ltd prides itself on providing a knowledgeable and dependable service to all our customers. We are passionate at adhering to our environmentally friendly policy by committing to the sole use of a vegetable-derived 100% biodegradable chain oil in all our saws and bio-diesel in all our trucks. We have arrangements in place dedicated to the recycling in our arboricultural operations to produce zero waste.

I recently had 3 large trees removed by VI Tree Service. 2 of the trees were 60ft.+ (3ft.dbh) and 10 feet from our home. The crew was punctual, professional, highly skilled with a work ethic seldom seen these days. Not only was the work finished as I requested but the site's final cleanup was very thorough as well. I would highly recommend VI Tree Service for any tree issues.

VI Tree Services are a chop above the rest!! After numerous attempts to find a company that would take on a risky task of cutting my 6 poplars in a confined area. Vancouver Island Tree Services rose to the occasion.Troy provided a fair quote and reliable service. The team showed when they said they would be finishing the job on time and cleaning up after themselves. I would not hesitate to use them again or recommend their service to anyone.
